The class will have a discussion on what characteristics a person should have to be seen as significant or important in history. Once, the class has come to a consensus on the skills necessary to be an important figure. Students will be taught a lesson on all of the major significant figures in ancient Greece. Students will be provided a graphic organizer to organize the information on each of these significant figures.
This is lesson 1 of 3 in a mini-unit integrating civics and world history.
